Twist on Pancakes: See this for breakfast

 

Looking for something different than typical pancakes or don’t feel like standing over the stove cooking pancakes? Well then try pancake sticks. These are similar to French toast sticks, as far as the form. Plus these are a healthy breakfast choice.

 

In addition, these pancake sticks fall under make ahead meals to save time.  You can make these ahead of time, separate them into Ziploc freezer bags for individual servings. Either the night before pull them out of the freezer and place into the refrigerator so you just need to heat and go, or in the morning defrost them in the microwave. These are good right out of the microwave, but if you like them crispier heat in the oven or toaster over for a few minutes. These are perfect for mornings when everyone is running late. These are good even without dipping them into syrup, for the days you are really late and need to get to the office.  Here is the recipe:

2 cups white whole wheat flour

4 Tablespoons Sugar (I used raw sugar)

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

2 Eggs

2 ¾ Cup Low Fat Milk or Vanilla Soy Milk

3 Tablespoons Melted Butter

1 ½ Cups of Granola (You can use any kind, I used Bear Naked Sea Salt Caramel Apple)

1 Apple cut into small pieces

 

Grease 9 X 13 Baking pan.  Pre-heat oven to 375.

Mix all of the dry ingredients together. Next add eggs, milk, and melted butter. Mix all ingredients. Mix in granola. Last fold in apple pieces.  Pour into greased baking pan.

Before you place into oven make a topping, mix 1 tablespoon cinnamon & 2 tablespoons sugar together in a separate bowl and sprinkle onto batter.  (You can adjust the amount of cinnamon & sugar to your preferred taste)

OR

Another option for the topping is to make a streusel topping by mixing together ¼ cup flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, ¼ cup brown sugar, and cut in 1 Tablespoon butter then sprinkle over batter.

 

Bake for approximately 15 – 20 minutes, or until your toothpick is clean. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting into sticks. Sprinkle powder sugar on top of bars, dip in syrup, spread apple butter on, or eat just how they are.
